Frames to Accent Contemporary Design
Minimalistic, natural and even distressed are the hallmarks of today's contemporary picture frames. The lack of detail and understated appearance of contemporary picture frames puts the artifact front and center, without ornate detailing to detract from the painting or photo. The growing appeal of modern Scandinavian design has been a major influence on today's preferences, particularly the increasing popularity of minimalist furniture.
Clear, satiny wood finishes that feature the natural beauty of the wood grain are becoming a favorite with interior decorators, as well as frames made from salvaged wood with a “distressed” look. Painted wood frames are out this year; more natural shades of brown and gray are in.
Metal frames in silvery shades are in vogue these days for the purpose of framing photographs. Here too, the “distressed” look is popular, such as a surface that has been hammered slightly for a “pebbled” appearance.
